Checking things out today. Found a couple of blue levers, under the valve handles for the grey and black tanks. When turned, water came shooting out of hoses underneath.



Anyone know what they are?

Are they 1/4 turn valves? Probably your low point drains.

Don't know what a 1/4 turn valve is, but that is what they do.

Why would a low drain point be marked black or grey?

The black and grey lables are for your black and grey holding tank pull out handles. The two 1/4" blue valves are your low point drains like said above. Here is a photo of mine.

Yep, they are the hot and cold water low point drains.

All,

That is what makes this forum so good. I had the same question.

Thanks,

Max

Thanks all.



Guess they just happen to be under the gray and black handles.



Are these the only low point drains? I notice a screw on camp on a hose at the rear of the trailer.

That one is most likely the drain for the water tank.

Yes I agree it's the drain for the fresh water storage tank. The one you fill with a hose. Should be a cap on the rear to take off when filling the fresh water storage tank. This is for when you are dry camping and are using the water pump. A little tip on filling the fresh water storage tank. Take an old water hose. Cut off the hose about 15-20 inches from the female end. Then you can attach that to the hose when filling the tank and be able to push the 15-20 inch hose down into the fill spout.
